RIVRS - "LAST LOVE" (ELECTRO-POP, UK)
Fledgling three piece RIVRS only started producing music late last year but already the London darlings of Charlotte, Fin and Fred have nurtured a sound that feels extremely developed and assured, belying their short gestation period as a band. Few can muster such efforts (Breton, Syron, Only Real, Say Lou Lou), therefore the trio sit amongst good company.
Already, RIVRS have tantalised the French powerhouse that is Kitsune (to which their latest records finds itself) as well as being championed by 6 Music's Lauren Laverne. No mean feat indeed. "Last Love" is a viscous indulgence in noire-scape aural explorations; towers of synthesised wonderment generate a sense of space and allow the musical canvas to take shape from the offset. Charlotte's soaring vocals are part ethereal, part bloodstained, seeped in a pang of anguish between hollowed digital agitations and swooning choruses. BROODS meets IYES in one slithering pool of electro mood-pop. Perfectly emotive, perfectly balanced in an auditory sense. RIVRS are onto a winner.
